What you Need:
What you do:
The basic recipe calls for mixing 1 cup of liquid castile soap with 1 cup of distilled or filtered water, and then adding a few drops of lavender essential oil. You can store this in any plastic container. I like to use old baby shampoo bottles.
But an even more cost-saving way to make this diy baby shampoo is in a foaming soap dispenser. All you need is 1 oz of liquid castile soap for every 4 ozs of water. Add these to an empty and clean foaming soap dispenser and add about 3 drops of lavender essential oil. A little goes a long way with this recipe! And you will find that you don’t need a lot to keep the little ones clean.
It doesn’t get much easier than that to make your own baby shampoo. And you just need a few ingredients. The main one being castile soap, but you can buy a large container and be stocked up for a long time.
